This “Berry” Fruity Black Bean Smoothie was the winning contest entry from our Make Your New Year Better with Beans smoothie recipe contest in 2021.  It’s a super simple smoothie filled with the goodness of fruit and black beans, and sweetened with maple syrup.


  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberry
  • 1/2 cup frozen sliced strawberry
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)


Put all ingredients in blender and blend well (1-3 minutes) to ensure beans and fruit are all blended well. If it is too thick add more water.


This is also great as a frozen treat!
